Abstract

This paper presented a basic conditioning in experimental research for kenaf, consisting of soil characteristics, water conditions, harvest date and phytotoxicity. Various studies showed that kenaf was able to remediate organic matter polluted soil while increasing its biomass. Important attention was addressed for concentration distribution of various heavy metals in all kenaf parts and its influence on the biomass quality. A proposed research strategy should be directed to assure the kenaf capable of improving the environment without reducing the plant quality.
